Extra fine dining with an experimental touch. Underrated.

I went here with my wife for our anniversary dinner. Since we have a child we don't have the chance anymore to go out that often, so if we go it has to be good. Restaurant Opera was just like last year absolutely fantastic. We choose the Gourmet menu, which is a nice amount of courses with a lot... read more

The Opera restaurant is located in the Ambassador Hotel a l'Opera right next to the Zurich Opera House. We were staying at the hotel and chose to have dinner at the Opera Restaurant our first evening there. My wife and I found our dinner to be a very pleasant experience.

Great location in central Zurich, very professional wait staff, had the cod fish fried which was prepared well and had a wonderful taste. Not over cooked . Across form the opera hotel and opera house. Close to the lake. We ate lunch here but would like to go back for supper.

Reviewing the place after many years of patronage, I am happy to comment. The range of dishes is limited, but the quality and preparation is good to excellent. The choice of wines and drinks is appropriate and the staff is competent and friendly. During our visit on 26 June 2015, the serving staff did a great job, despite the place... More

We absolutely loved charming restaurant with fresh daily selection of great fish deliciously prepared to your liking. If you are a fish lover - its absolutely a must. They have other food choices but we did not try them because we ate different fish two times we visited while our five day stay in Zurich.

In the Hotel Ambassador next to the Opera. Intriguing and original ceiling and wall murals dominate the decoration with scenes from a variety of well known operas. The flowers were beautifully extravagant. The staff is warm, friendly and impeccable. Service is attentive. The cuisine is delicious. They specialize in fish yet have meat choices as well. The fresh caught perch... More

Wide choice on the menu. Staff were very attentive and considerate. Lovely setting. The food was extremely well presented and whilst not too generous tasted so so good.

We ordered the 'fish for two' (Steinbutt), which was brought to our table before it was cooked, filetted as we watched, and carefully divided between the two of us (so we each had one underside and one overside piece). The fish was done perfectly, not a moment too long or too little, and the side sauce was not needed, so... More
